Dr. Josh Axe (Part 2): Mindset and Health

Welcome back to part two of my conversation with Dr. Josh Axe! Last week, Dr. Axe discussed the challenges he faced during a dark season of his life, where he found himself unable to walk for an entire year. Despite this adversity, he channeled his time and energy into writing his latest book, “Think of This and Not That.”

Today, our talk takes a turn as we explore the connection between mindset, healing, and joy. Dr. Axe discusses the important role the mind plays in recovery and how cultivating a positive mindset can have transformative effects on the body and spirit.

So, grab a cozy seat and prepare to be inspired by what Dr. Axe shares about the power of the mind in fostering healing and embracing joy.
